Sanctus Reach does offer a handful of decent moments. I chuckled when I reduced a squadron of Orks to bloody puddles, and again when I managed what at first seemed an impossible incursion. But these flashes of satisfaction aren't enough to hold up a game that’s mediocre at best and vexing at worst. Together with a host of minor annoyances, they add up to a long, dull stint with a bad game from a great franchise that deserves far better treatment.
There is still polish to be done by the devs before it's this is a refined experience, but a lot of the issues can be overlooked once you get an hour or two into the core game and you are working out how to hold a line against the waves of greenskin. Much of the central gameplay is there, and there are loads of great ideas and units to extend tactical range.
Overall it’s a well-executed turn based strategy that gets all of its gameplay elements right but lacks that extra bit of shine here and there to really push it over the edge. A little more customization in the leveling department would have also been a strong move and having more story driven content such as cut scenes or voice over narration would have been a benefit.
